In October 1912 Edgar Rice Burroughs released Tarzan to the public in the pulp magazine All-Story Magazine. The success of this short story led to Burroughs releasing his first Tarzan novel two years later. Since then there have been 24 novels, 8 movies (including Disney’s 1999 version), numerous comic books/graphic novels and weekly comic strips.
